To celebrate the 22nd Anniversary of the Macau handover, Albergue SCM is organizing “Give back the Blue to the Oceans”, a solo exhibition by the Portuguese renowned artist Isabel Nunes. Born in Lisbon in 1957, Artist Isabel Nunes currently lives and works in Lisbon. She was graduated from the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, majoring in History (Art History focus). She also stayed in Macau and studied subjects related to visual arts. As an established artist, she has launched over 40 individual exhibitions and has participated in over 30 collective exhibitions. Her works are represented in private and public collections in Macau, Portugal, the United Kingdom, Finland, Germany, Italy, and Angola.
The exhibition “Give back the Blue to the Oceans” presents 19 latest works of the artist. With the theme of marine conservation, the works invite the audience to meditate on the process of how the polluted transcends into purity, and rebirths into the realm of eternal blue. On the other hand, the artist is also deeply inspired by the experience of life in Macau, integrating traditional Chinese ink and wash techniques into his creation, and exploring the collision of Chinese and Western cultures through creation.
“Give back the Blue to the Oceans – Exhibition by Isabel Nunes, On the Occasion of the Celebration of the 22nd Anniversary of Macau Handover to China” is organized by Albergue SCM, sponsored by the Macau Foundation, and will be open to the public at the A2 Gallery of Albergue SCM from December 15th, 2021 to
